At BasicNecessities Inc, we understand the importance of confidentiality to our clients. Whether you are only retrieving information from our website, or communicating with us about resources, projects, or advice, we hold your name in the strictest confidence. We do not keep any personal client information on our web site. Furthermore, we do not generally maintain written records of clients, other than informally if we are dealing with you in a current crisis or situation. We hold your identification in the strictest of confidence, so that you have a place to obtain information in private. This confidentiality extends to our sponsors, donors, and volunteers so that you may feel free to help in any way without concern for your privacy.
We do not "harvest" email addresses from our website visitors or from anyone else. If you post to our guestbook, your email address is not shown in your post.
